to that and you heard the president then announce that all u.s. troops would be coming home. some critics are raising security concerns with all u.s. troops leaving iraq by year's end, and the president emphasized that he has kept a campaign promise. this was a man who ran vowing to end the war in iraq in his remarks and he also refocused america's efforts on taking out terrorists, especially al qaeda. he is underscoring that he has kept his promises to the american people, a surprisingly political message from the president along with this announcement today, erin. >> jessica, thank you very much. obviously, the campaign trail, perry, romney, cain, our political roundtable will weigh in on scathing criticism there. we'll go to the pentagon and chris, to hear what secretary leon panetta has had to say tonight. >> reporter: erin, he's traveling in asia right now, but spoke to reporters onboard the plane and he said now the pentagon has to turn its attention to establishing a long-term strategic partnership with iraq and even suggested that after all of the troops leave at the end of the y
thank you. that's it for us tonight. "ac 360" starts right now. tonight, breaking news. a leading conservative powerbroker or mega church pastor calling mitt romney's religion a cult and says that obama embraces difficult positions and when robert jeffreys talks, his congregation of 10,000 and conservative christian voters listen and respond in the voting booth. when he spoke today at a gathering in washington, he made both major news and major waves in the 2012 presidential race. he joins us momentarily. here's a sample of what he said to jim acosta after he introduced perry on stage. >> southern baptist convention which is the largest protestant denomination in the world officially labelled mormonnisms is a cult. i think romney is a good world man. i think those of us that are born again followers of christ should always prefer a competent christian to a competent -- to a competent nonchristian like mitt romney. that's why i'm enthusiastic about rick perry. >> what do you say that mormonnism shouldn't be an issue in this campaign? he's just as american as everybody else. >> i ag
six week. >> maybe he has more details to give us in the weeks ahead. given the slip in the polls an the questions of whether he can handle himself in a debate, is that good enough? >> no. it didn't seem like it here tonight. obviously his campaign decided we are going to simplify things and give him one idea, energy equals jobs an let him be quiet and get through that way. the last debate, the excuse was made, he was standing up all debate long and this should have been his debate, he was sitting down. next time he will have to get a mattress. there was no energy, no fire and too simple. >> instead of seeming like an aggressor, perry sort of almost seemed like a bystander here. he really couldn't afford to do that. he just put out a brutal web ad against mitt romney, which attacked him on being a flip-flopper and on his massachusetts health care. and then tonight, instead of building on that aggressively, he just kind of seemed to be a little more passive or a lot more passive than i thought he needed to be. >> so dana, if that's the case. >> gloria -- >> i wanted to raise a poin
generations to come. for those of us lucky enough to get to work with him, it's been an insanely great honor. i will miss steve immensely." the tributes are pouring in on twitter as well. so many that the service has been jammed on and off throughout the evening. throughout the hour tonight we'll be talking to a lot of people who can fill in the picture of what steve jobs would likely have called an insanely great life. but we begin tonight with the one person who was there at the very beginning, steve jobs's partner in the creation of the apple computer, steve wozniak. he joins us now by phone. steve, my condolences to you. obviously, you have lost an old friend. what went through your mind tonight when you heard the news? >> hi, anderson. thanks for your feelings. i'm a little bit like awestruck, like just dumfounded. and i can't put my mind into gear. i can't do things. it's kind of like, you know, when john lennon died or jfk. i don't think hardly anybody else -- maybe martin luther king. it's sort of like, oh, you're just -- like there's a big hole left in you. and it's very hard to, yo
. >> i hope we can do it again that is all for us tonight. "ac 360" starts right now. we begin tonight keeping them honest. what president obama did not say when he made his surprise announcement that nearly all-american troops will be home from iraq by year's end. it's a fact that raises questions whether the administration intended the american presence in iraq to end this way or whether the stunning statement by the president was plan a or plan b. >> after nearly nine years, america's war in iraq will be over. over the next two months, our troops in iraq, tens of thousands of them, will pack up their gear and board convoys for the journey home. >> up on the white house website, the headline reads, "president obama has ended the war in iraq." the white house take on this is simple. president obama promis to end u.s. troop involvement in iraq and today fulfilled that promise. in one sense, it's absolutely true. here's what he said when he launched his campaign nearly four years ago. >> america, it is time to start bringing our troops home. it's time -- it's time to admit that no amoun
" and the daily beast. great to have both of you with us. gloria, since you're out in vegas, why don't you give us the sense, what was the response to ron paul's plan today, which, of course, in addition to the trillion-dollar budget cut in year one also included getting rid of several federal agencies. >> reporter: i think republicans are very interested in hearing what ron paul has to say. he's been a -- someone who's been on the scene for quite some time. but when you scratch the surface, erin, you see that he wants to eliminate five cabinet departments. he wants to cut spending back to 2006 levels. but when you look at that, that would mean severe cuts in things like medicaid, children's health insurance programs, and, again, once you look at the details, people are going to start raising questions about it. one other thing, he doesn't touch social security or, guess what, medicare. and those, even to this libertarian, seem to be sort of sacred cows, wouldn't you say, in an election year? >> that's an interesting point. john, what do you think about what gloria's saying, though? you come up wi
increase housing prices? well the chief economist of real estate website zillow website told us, even if the plan is fully implemented and everything is perfect, prices of homes may not rise. that was not the answer we were hoping for. two, will it work overall? ken rosen is an economist who helped write the original housing plan and told us he is very skeptical it will be implemented successfully, because it only backs mortgages handled by fannie mae and freddie mac. we don't have enough people to handle this many refis because unemployment has plunged 55% since the crisis. the bottom line is this though. even though there are questions about the plan we have a very big hole to dig out of on housing which at its peak was about 20% of the entire american economy. meantime we have more self-inflicted wounds like a congress that can't promise to make a deal to avoid more downgrades of america's debt which will cause interest rates for all americans to rise. will cane is a contributor here at cnn, contributor to theblaze.com. bill rady is former ceo and chairman of mtv international and
